Industrial communication solutions for industry


Wi-Fi

In a fast-paced world, transparent

architecture keeps you up to speed

Automation solutions have evolved considerably. Industrial solutions

initially utilized proprietary networks – equipment from each major vendor

communicated through a custom bus protocol and cable. Network

requirements such as communication speeds, transparency, and device

connectivity have grown. Ethernet-based networks represent the next step

in the evolution of industrial networking.

Our open and flexible architecture and network topologies offer transparent

access to the information that you need, from the plant floor to the

enterprise level. Ethernet technology provides the global interoperability,

future-proof investment, low total-cost-of-ownership, and network

optimization for every application. The control network presents peer-topeer

communication and time synchronization at 100 Mbps, allowing global

real-time data exchange as well as distributed control.

PlantStruxure industrial communication solutions allow you to quickly access

accurate information to help you make smarter decisions by connecting you

with your process.

Your challenges

• The engineer needs flexibility to update or expand the existing architecture.

• The operator has to operate the plant smoothly and efficiently from any location.

•The production manager needs real-time information to make the right decisions.

•The maintenance person needs to be able to identify the root cause of a problem.

as quickly as possible to minimize downtime.

•The plant manager needs to collect key data to improve plant profitability.

PlantStruxure TM solutions are collaborative

architectures that allow you to meet

your automation needs while delivering

on growing energy management requirements.

Ethernet is the core automation network

component of PlantStruxure that makes

transparent information available from

your plant floor to your enterprise.

* Compound Annual Growth Rate

Our networking solutions allow transparent

communication among field, process,

plant, and enterprise. Network technologies

and web services guarantee the efficient

sharing and distribution of information

between sensors, instrumentation, devices,

controllers, operator work stations, and other

third party systems.

> Enterprise

The greater corporate network encompassing

multiple sites. The enterprise level contains systems

and servers that leverage data from all plants, like

an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, for

example.

> Plant

The network within a specific plant or site.

The plant network is composed of systems

and servers common to process networks within

the plant. Examples include manufacturing

execution systems (MES) and historians.

> Process

The network enabling communications within a

specific process. The process network includes all

traditional industrial control equipment, including

PACs, HMI and SCADA.

> Fieldbus

Device equipment that reads data from the field and

takes action upon a process. Examples include I/O

devices, drives, MCCs and instrumentation.

Features and benefits

> System-wide time synchronization:

The system features automatic time

synchronization between all components, with

the option of integrating hot-standby time servers.

This ensures that all alarms, events, and other

information are stored and displayed in the order

that they occur so as to provide a clear picture of

the status of your operations.

> Fast device replacement technology to

automatically configure replacement devices

in the system and reduce maintenance time.

> Event notification via e-mail directly from

the device.

> Our controllers feature inbuilt web servers with

onboard data logging to reduce maintenance and

increase architecture flexibility.

These advanced features offer you the flexibility

to choose the right architecture to meet your

process requirements.
